James River Water Tank Replacement

About This Project

This project included the design of a one million gallon elevated water storage tank that is 183 feet tall with concrete pedestal and mat foundation. Brockenbrough was responsible for the site design, water line extensions, and electrical power service.  The design included a preliminary engineering report (PER) with water network analysis modeling to assure adequate water flows for domestic and fire service to the Virginia Department of Corrections, Goochland County, and Powhatan County for the future 3 million gallon per day flow demands.  The design also included expansion of the 16-inch water distribution piping system in the tank service area.


Design of a tank and pump station telemetry system interfaced with the State’s radio network Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system. Work also included the design of a tank cathodic protection system. Brockenbrough obtained approval from the Virginia Department of Health, the Virginia Department of General Services, and the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality.
